[Illinois] BioE 498/ME 498: Experimental Methods for Biological Machines (Traction Force Microscopy Experiment)
09 May 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Taher A. Saif, Samantha Knoll, Sandeep Anand
Traction Force Microscopy (TFM)
Using polyacrylamide gels with fluorescent microspheres, students in Professor Saif's laboratory Samantha and Sandeep show how to track cellular motion and calculate traction forces. In this video, the students first walk through the procedure of creating the polyacrylamide gels with the microspheres. Later in the video, the students show the calculation of displacement and traction forces.
